Nintendo has announced that on March 3rd when The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is released, it will also have a season pass for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game. Players will get access to some items right away to help them out and then later in the year, extra content to enjoy.
The first content pack is scheduled to launch this winter, and will include the addition of a Cave of Trials challenge, a new hard mode and a new feature for the in-game map. The second content pack will launch in Holiday 2017, and adds new challenges that will let players enjoy a new dungeon and a new original story. The Expansion Pass will be available for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U versions of the game and are identical. Content packs cannot be purchased individually.
“The world of Hyrule, which we created for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is so large and vibrant that we wanted to offer more for players to experience within it,” said Nintendo developer Eiji Aonuma, the longtime producer of the series. “With this new Expansion Pass, we hope that fans will play, explore and enjoy the game even more.”
